DEATH OF PROFESSOR MICHAEL BOOTH (1931-2017)

The School is sorry to announce the death of Michael Booth, who served for ten years from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s as the first Professor of Theatre Studies at Warwick. Michael was a leading scholar on nineteenth-century British theatre, many of whose publications are still essential reading for academics and students working in the area today. His many books included English Melodrama, Hiss the Villain, English Plays of the Nineteenth Century (5 volumes), Victorian Spectacular Theatre, Victorian Theatrical Trades and Theatre in the Victorian Age. He also co-edited an anthology of essays on Edwardian theatre. He is remembered at Warwick for his collegiality, his early consolidation of Theatre Studies within the university and his strong support of Warwick Arts Centre. He was also extremely supportive of and generous to fellow researchers and early career scholars working on nineteenth-century theatre studies.

Cultural and Media Policy Studies News and Events

Lorraine Lim

We are saddened to report the death of Lorraine Lim on 13th September 2017. Lorraine was a much loved and respected student, researcher and teacher in the Centre for Cultural Policy Studies, and she will be deeply missed by her colleagues, students and friends at Warwick, at Birkbeck and in the wider academic community. She died in Singapore with her family and boyfriend at her side, following a recurrence of the cancer which she had continued to battle against. Her death came as a shock, especially for those of us who saw her at ICCPR in Seoul last year, where she enjoyed meeting up with many of her Warwick friends and seemed on sparkling form. She was undoubtedly a rising star in her field, and she will be remembered for her academic achievements and tireless professionalism but perhaps more especially for the infectious mixture of irrerverent humour, enthusiasm, intelligence and compassion which she shared with those around her. .../more
